KIds eating out

  • Rushden Lakes – the one-stop-shop for May half term

    Exploring, climbing, canoeing and pizza competitions, what more do you want for the school holiday break?

  • 14 pretty perfect picnic spots in Northants…

    It's time to dig out the wicker basket and fill it with al fresco goodies. Northamptonshire has some fantastic picnic gems which are mostly kid friendly (but big enough to not be near them, should you prefer ; )

  • Swanning around in Lamport

    The Swan at Lamport - gorgeous countryside, family friendly and super tasty; a true Northamptonshire favourite and it's perfect location for a gentle, post Sunday lunch amble at nearby Brixworth or Pitsford.

  • It’s playtime at Rushden Lakes!

    Just when you thought Rushden Lakes had it all. This new play area is bound to get the Mudlets buzzing!

  • Wanna pizza the action Brooklyn stylee?

    I'm not a huge fan of pizza, but this place had something just a bit different about it. A little slice of Brooklyn in the heart of Northampton!

  • Muddy eats: Overstone Arms

    With an orchard garden to lose hours in and tapas to fuel you through glorious countryside walks, The overstone Arms might just be your new go to lunch venue!
